Ceramic & Plastic

Media-Ceramic and Polyester Resin

Ceramic and polyester resin (plastic) Medias provide a superior finish to a wide variety of parts when added to a mass finishing machine. While ceramic media can be used on all metal types, polyester resin media is perfect for softer metals such as aluminum, brass, or copper where impingement may cause a problem.

Chosen by SHAPE, SIZE, and, COMPOSITION (CUT), media determination is based on the dimensions of the part as well as the required APPLICATION and desired finish.

Tri-Cyl or Cyl-Cut Media is a versatile shape suitable for use on a wide variety of surfaces. Made with a cylindrical surface that mates well with concave surfaces, plus two flat surfaces that perform well on convex surfaces. Tri-Cyls also combine the strong points of both triangles and cylinders to penetrate into corners, slots and angels.
